After disappointing in ESL Pro League Season XIV, G2 returns to the competition, this time around in BLAST's servers. Their first opponent will be MiBR, which will be a great challenge to see if G2 is really having ongoing issues.
MiBR, while not only of the best teams from the Americas, has recently shown that they are starting to progress and be able to compete with the lower tiers of competition in Europe. While we don't expect them to outright win this game, we certainly think that considering their form against G2's might be enough to see them taking one map.
As many saw in EPL, G2 bombed out of their group, losing all five matches and winning a couple of maps only. The squad looked disjointed, and while they had time to adapt, they will now need to prove themselves again. We expect them to win this game, but MiBR should give them some trouble.
In any case, we do recommend a positive map handicap bet on MiBR. The Brazilians should be able to get one map from G2 considering their form. Otherwise, we expect G2 to win the overall game.
We expect to see Inferno, Mirage and Vertigo being the maps played.
If you prefer simple betting, or if you play games like fantasy league/
My pick: G2 Esports
